Sean Cloherty known to gardai as a drug dealer shot up to six times in the head, neck and chest.

12:54 |

Sean Cloherty (27), known to gardai as a drug dealer, was targeted in his home on Ashcroft Grove, off the Blakestown Road in Mulhuddart. There was no sign of a struggle or forced entry. The victim, originally from Champions Avenue in the city centre, had been shot up to six times in the head, neck and chest. Cloherty was known to city centre detectives for dealing cocaine, particularly in the Temple Bar area. He was targeted by officers in the South Central Division and was arrested and taken to Pearse Street station during the summer. He had convictions for drugs, abusive behaviour and traffic offences. “Gardai have come across this man before and know his track record. He was associated with some of the big heads on the Blanchardstown scene,” said a source. A neighbour noted that Mr Cloherty, his partner and two children had only been living in the area for a short period.
The body was found slumped on a couch in the living room, and it is believed the killer calmly walked out of the house, closing the door behind him. It is likely that the gunman was either known to his victim or that he arrived at the house under false pretences and was invited inside. The weapon was probably fitted with a silencer. The grim discovery was made shortly after 8pm when a man who had a prearranged appointment to view a car for sale, looked through the living room window. He immediately contacted a doctor who arrived at the scene and the man was pronounced dead immediately. Gardai arrived on the scene shortly afterwards and the area was sealed off as top level investigators moved in. The Deputy State Pathologist Dr Michael Curtis was expected to arrive in Mulhuddart this afternoon and will carry out a post-mortem. The body will remain at the scene until a crime scene unit have completed a detailed examination of the home. The house was the subject of garda attention and had been raided by detectives exactly a week ago today. In recent months the man was said by sources to have been picked up by gardai near a heroin seizure in Louth. The victim's next door neighbour said that she was at home all yesterday evening but heard nothing. “It wasn't until all the gardai started arriving that people realised something had happened,” she said. The victim previously had an address at Champions Avenue in the north inner centre.
This year ten people have died in gangland murders in Dublin alone. Another known drug dealer from Dublin, Paddy Doyle, was shot dead near Estepona in Spain in February.
